This looks fun but who has the time? The only GC log was abandoned before completion. Since we are using Havel's Jester 1999(and Brown's Centennial 100 sqs.) for comparison of Very Large CVs, this recalls the fine novelty of Jester, Quadra-Pawn, and Archer together. Somehow here so many as 110 squares are an exigency to accomodate the specific mix, and they must have gone back and forth between the piece-types and size to perfect it. Piece values to the tenths seem like serious effort, taking account of that board size. The five different promotion variations(Shogi-like) are an overcomplication, and Brown simplified with slightly later Centennial, their semi-collaboration justifying extensive borrowing. The 'inadvertent' Murray Lion's appearing so frequently, as here, may carry a message: who can rule out random(computer?) piece creation as a possibility? Two pieces per move until capturing could be a good standard for Very Large category. These two Comments three yrs. apart intentionally complement so not to repeat.
